Certainly helps make clear what God's standard is regarding sex for the single and the married. Also provides some practical guidance about things you can do to help stop..well, bad habits. I recommend it for anyone really trying to do better in this area of their life.

My review goes to the book itself, not the study guide. The book itself doesn't register on goodreads. Not a good sign.

I have enjoyed Harris' other books. This one deals with one of my most formidable opponent-Lust. It never satisfies despite our pursuit and the dumb things we do as a result of it. God has better things planned for us-sex in a marriage.

I read the book, didn't do the study guide, especially not the men's!!

An informative book regarding to guarding your mind, soul, body, and eyes. It points out what exactly one is struggling with and why. I am a female and was able to see the issue and problem. It had good insight about the issue of lust a many ways we as Christians can overcome it and although there is no solution there should be limitations and arduous discipline. Over all a very easy and useful read. I enjoyed it.
Although I didn't read this in its entirety (more of a heavy skim), it had good thoughts and practical ideas for any person (male of female)caught in the trap of lust. Seems to focus more on heart issues leading to masturbation rather than heart issues leading to fornication.

Reading this with my husband, although the copy we have doesn't say it is for men. Wanting to communicate a helpful, responsible, God-centered view on this to our boys.
